370 train turns were cancelled this morning, due to the strike staged by the Railway workers.

According to Railway Department, only 30 office trains were in operation today.

Railway Graded Trade Union Collective staged the strike last midnight based on several demands including salary anomalies.

Railway stationmasters, guards, train controllers, engine drivers and supervising officers are engaged in the strike.

The Convener of the Collective, Janaka Fernando told our news team that they’re awaiting an opportunity to hold discussions with the Presidential Secretary within the course of the day.

Meanwhile, the railway authorities state that they will take all necessary measures to continue the train services to minimize inconvenience caused to the passengers.

SLTB has taken measures to deploy additional buses today to prevent inconvenience caused to the passengers due to the railway strike.
